Water Heater Repair FAQ From Kansas City Homeowners

How do I know if I need my water heater repaired?

When temperatures drop in Kansas City, it’s vital that your hot water heater is functioning properly. If you notice any of the following issues, reach out to an experienced hot water heater repair professional.

  • Your utility bill is abnormally high
  • Water is discolored or looks “rusty.”
  • Lack of hot water
  • Pilot light malfunctions
  • It takes significantly longer for the water to heat up
  • Unusual noises or smells

If you are having issues, remember it could be any number of things that are affecting your commercial or residential water heater. Don’t repair it yourself. Call a Kansas City-based water heater repair specialist to come diagnose any problems.

How long does a hot water heater last before it needs to be replaced?

With routine maintenance, a traditional tank water heater will last as long as 15 years, while a tankless system will last even longer – as much as 25 years. When you’re ready to purchase a new system it’s vital to purchase a system that will heat the water thoroughly and is also reliable.

We highly recommend consulting with a professional residential water heater repair and installation specialist in Kansas City. They can help you with any questions or concerns and also perform a proper installation that will last for the life of the water heater and ensure that your new unit is running smoothly.

What are the different types of water heaters?

The two most common types of water heater are, the conventional storage water heater – or traditional tank water heaters – which are the most common in America and are typically very affordable; and the tankless system, which heats water directly and is a space saver. You can find either powered by gas or electricity.

There are also options to purchase solar water heaters, heat pump water heaters and indirect water heaters, which use a home’s heating system for providing hot water. Whatever type of system you decide to use, make sure you have a quality company on hand to help with any water heater repairs, including gas or electric water heater repairs.

How often should I have my water heater repaired or serviced in my Kansas City home?

We highly recommend that Kansas City residents have their water heaters serviced and flushed once per year by a local company. This will help elongate the life of your unit as all will corrode with age. The water temperature and pressure will fluctuate if it’s not taken care of properly. A water heater repair specialist can help to make sure you get the most of your unit.

When a water heater is not flushed then sediment builds at the bottom of the tank and will cause long-term problems, and could mean you’ll need expensive water heater repairs or even will need to replace your water heater earlier than expected. So, take our advice, get your water heater repaired and maintained by a Kansas City-based professional annually in order to save money in the long-term.

Review from: Kristen McBride

What started with a simple clogged toilet turned into much more than expected. Polestar was great at trouble shooting and working hard to fix the problem without trying to selling me more. The technicians were professional, prompt and very knowledgeable. We will defiantly call Polestar again for any of our plumbing needs.

Your Guide to Water Heater Repair and Maintenance in Kansas City

At Polestar, we know that there’s nothing worse than when you’re getting ready to take a shower or wash dishes and there’s no hot water. It’s especially important to know that you can rely on a water heater repair specialist like us in a place like Kansas City, where temperatures in the winter can regularly reach single digits! 

Some key tips to help avoid a nightmare water heater repair scenario: it's important that a professional regularly checks the pressure relief valve, to prevent excessive pressure building up in the tank. If you have a tank, make sure it’s drained fully to eliminate any gunk at the bottom, and inspect the anode rod, a crucial component of the heating element that prevents corrosion. 

No matter the type of water heater you have – a regular repair service that includes inspection and, if needed, hot water heater repair will keep your Kansas City home comfortable and the hot water flowing.
